Having problems with your HP Compaq 6720s Notebook ?

Sometimes doesn't turn on...

\015 About once every day or every two days this problem occurs: When the laptop is opened and the power button is pushed, the fan turns on but nothing loads. If left sitting, the fan will continue to go but nothing will load even after several minutes. Then you have to hold on the power button for about 5 seconds and the computer will power down. Pressing power again will result in the same problem.So, I turned the computer off, and removed the battery for about 5 seconds. Then when I put the battery back in, the computer powers up fine. So, I have found a temporary solution but would rather not have to pull the battery out every time this problem occurs. Any thoughts?\015
